Securus has made every effort to negotiate mutually acceptable and intelligent financial agreements and arrangements with companies that utilize its exclusive rights without prior licensing throughout its history. The company is capable of agreeing on reasonable licensing with several parties including the earlier license agreements with GTL. Global Tel Link felt dissatisfied and went ahead to publish false allegations against Securus after their recent transactions with one another. The GTL’s Press article on 7 June 2016 contained multiple statements which Securus found to be inaccurate and misleading. GTL had opted to utilize their resources to engage Securus in license fights for unknown reasons. Securus went ahead to clarify and correct the several incorrect GTL claims by releasing a list of its exclusive business rights which exceed the ones held by GTL. Securus showed how its copyright metrics were much favorable than GTL’s.


Securus further declared that the Texas federal court case was long overdue and that GTL was in no position to seek any further relief. Securus moved to court rehearing with regards to GTL’s allegations on the validity of ‘816 copyrights. As a result, GTL was not capable of requesting damages as it had earlier claimed. GTL was declaring a single independent claim from the ‘816 exclusive rights in the lawsuit against Securus even though the PTAB had refused to review the claims challenged against Securus. The GTL independent claim does not conform to the fundamental security feature disclosed during the agreement between GTL and Securus.
